Distinctive elements of our educational project
The Agora Sant Cugat International School Education Project is defined by five distinctive elements: the International Baccalaureate as a model for the future, multilingualism, STEAM, sport and the commitment to provide our students with the tools to grow as global citizens capable of changing the world.
IB: A model for the future
Agora Sant Cugat International School is the second school to offer the IB Continuum in Catalonia, and the 23rd nationally, providing pupils with a complete and demanding curriculum accepted by the most prestigious universities in the world. Comprising the International Baccalaureate® (IB) as well as the PYP and MYP, it is a model for the future which develops key skills in pupils at all educational stages for their academic, professional and personal success, helping them to achieve their goals in an international context.
We prepare our students for an international future. We offer a multilingual curriculum with immersion in both English and official languages and with classes offered in French, German and Chinese. To complement our school-based language programme, students are invited to participate in international events, exchanges and trips to a variety of overseas destinations.
STEAM: Science and Arts
Art and Science through STEAM abilities (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) is a teaching approach that encourages group work and the integration of highly related skills. These five competencies are the key to the integral development of children since they provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits and enhance their communication skills.
Sport, Health and Fitness
We promote the values implicit in participating in sporting activity, such as self-discipline, determination, a sense of fair-play and team spirit. At Agora Sant Cugat International School, we have a passion for sport and encourage our pupils to embrace healthy habits, enjoy an active lifestyle and to work towards long-term emotional and physical balance.
Shaping the world
Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030. Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a wider international community and are capable of shaping the world.
We provide our students with the tools to grow as global citizens capable of shaping the world.
